N’Faly Dante Rumors
Shams Charania: Oregon projected NBA lottery pick N’Faly Dante has been informed he will be ineligible to start season because the NCAA missed his clearance date, @The Athletic @Stadium has learned. Dante, a 6’11 big man out of Mali, says he will now reenroll at Oregon on Dec. 14. pic.twitter.com/a05nocBXdZ
This year’s camp will be headlined by Sekou Doumbouya (France), Luka Samanic (Croatia), Killian Hayes (France), N’Faly Dante (Mali), Charles Bassey (Nigeria) and others. Doumbouya and Samanic are both projected as top-10 picks in the 2019 draft, having dominated the Under-18 European Championships despite playing up a year or two on the competition. Doumbouya, a strong and explosive power forward with soft touch on his jumper, is already playing professional basketball in France’s second division, and he’s fresh off an impressive 26-point outing (on 12 attempts) this past weekend. Samanic is a versatile, 6-foot-11 power forward whose game is tailor-made for a camp of this setting with his ability to dribble, pass, shoot and defend multiple positions.
